Former softball head coach at Central Bryan Wallen is departing from the Lady Rebels and will take over as the new coach for the Farmington Lady Knights.

Coach Wallen wanted to make sure that everybody knew that the two moves were not related.

Rather, he had decided to leave Central a few years back when they switched seasons from Fall to Spring in order to ensure that he could travel to watch his daughter Kimmy Wallen play at SEMO.

Farmington softball plays in the Fall, while Kimmy, a senior at Central this year, will be competing at SEMO in the Spring.

As Coach Wallen makes the transition to Farmington, he reflects on a long and successful tenure in Park Hills.

And Coach Wallen also tells us about the change from coaching Kimmy at Central to now watching her at SEMO.

Coach Wallen thinks Kimmy will be fully recovered by Spring time from an injury that caused her to miss her entire senior campaign at Central.
